Last summer, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s trail builders worked side by side with the masterminds at Gravity Logic – the world’s premiere trail sculptors – to construct the resort’s all new Bike Park. Recently, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, with support from the The North Face, unveiled its all-new bike park to the public. This past weekend, we were on hand to sample some of the new trails with their ‘Free for All’ Bike Launch Party.

All types of riders--from the casual enthusiast to this Troy-Lee clad young ripper--were on hand to sample what the park had to offer.
